Jean Béraud, La Conversation
Jean Béraud’s paintings are synonymous with the Paris Belle Époque, so much so that at the turn of the century a scene of Parisian life came to be known as a "Béraud." Whisk yourself to the city of light while you view ‘La Conversation,’ now on public view in our #NYC galleries ahead of the #SothebysEuropean Auction on 21 November.

Ένα υπέροχο τοπίο του Klimt
‘A firework display of summer heat’: One of the greatest works by leading Modern master Gustav #Klimt to ever appear at auction, the luminous Bauerngarten is to lead our #Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale in #London next month. A jewel-like symphony of colours, this exquisite landscape was painted in the same year as Klimt’s iconic #golden Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. The painting is innovative in its composition, with an echo of a figure almost tangible under the triangular composition of #flowers. Last exhibited as a highlight of the critically-acclaimed @royalacademyarts ‘Painting the Modern #Garden’ show last year, Bauerngarten is set to be unveiled in our #HK galleries this Tuesday. #SothebysImpMod #GustavKlimt

100 χρόνια De Stijl
Gerrit Thomas Rietveld’s ‘Red-Blue Chair’ is arguably the most iconic example of De Stijl outside of painting. The avant-garde movement founded by Piet #Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg in 1917 was built on an aesthetic of primary colors and clear straight lines, and ushered in a new form of abstraction that inspired artists for over a century. Learn more about the movement in our S|2 selling exhibition ‘Iconoplastic: 100 Years of De Stijl’, now on view in our #NewYork galleries and open to the public through 8 December.

Standing at nearly 10 feet tall, Solomon Joseph Solomon’s ‘Eve’ is monumental in size and subject.

H βασίλισσα Ελισάβετ Β'
'I asked her to rest between shots – it was a moment of stillness that just happened': Photographer Chris Levine’s subjects are among the most photographed people in the world, yet he has a knack for capturing them at rest as if in the calm of a storm. During the photoshoot, Queen Elizabeth II was required to sit still for 8 seconds at a time, and between each exposure she closed her eyes to rest. Levine was struck by the beauty of her meditative state and snapped the shutter, resulting in this powerful and strikingly modern image. On view in #London from Friday as part of our #MadeinBritain sale. #ChrisLevine #TheQueen #HerMajesty #GodSavetheQueen #SothebysModBrit

Ένα φωτεινό ηλιοβασίλεμα του Magritte
The sun may be setting on Daylight Saving Time, but #SothebysImpMod and #SothebysContemporary Evening Auctions are on the rise 🌳☀️🌲. One of the most daring and inventive Surrealist landscapes, ‘Le Banquet’ by René #Magritte depicts a forest at sunset, with the bright red sun pasted onto the trees. The large-scale canvas is a magnificent example of two key elements of Magritte’s art: the influence of papiers collés on his painterly technique, and the juxtaposition of the visible and the invisible. Visit 1334 York Avenue from tomorrow through 14 November to view this poetic painting in person.
